SHOWDOWN OPPONENT FOR X FACTORY

L' ADVERSAIRE SHOWDOWN POUR X FACTORY

This coming Friday on National Geographic Channel’s Showdown Of The Unbeatables , X Factory, the X – 6 Cubed, Paul and Chazz Sinclair will face off against a Harris Hawk! Can the raptor capture the Cubed? Can the Cubed escape while on a race course? Tune in at 9 PM Eastern & Pacific to find out.

Ce vendredi sur la Showdown National Geographic Channel Of The Unbeatables, le X Factory, le X - 6 Cubed, de Paul et Chazz Sinclair affrontera l'AIGLE de Harris! Le rapace pourra t il capturer le Cubed? La Cubed pourrat il échapper à tout sur ​​un parcours? Rendez vous à 21 heures pour le savoir.

It would be one thing for the X – 6 Cubed to escape on a wide open field where Paul can drive it anywhere, but the Cubed must stay between the track markers. It would be one thing for Paul to do donuts at one part of the course throwing up lots of smoke and pebbles, but he must complete laps without being captured.

Ce sera le pari pour le X - 6 Cubed de s'en sortir sur vaste terrain ouvert où Paul pourra conduire n'importe où, mais le Cubed devra rester dans les limites de la piste. Le pari pour Paul sera aussi de faire des ronds sur lui même à un moment du run et ainsi dégager beaucoup de fumée et de cailloux, mais sont but est bien sur de finir ses tours sans être capturé.

And the Cubed must drag bait behind! As you can see in the photo, the Cubed is towing some rabbit fur which has been scented. Rabbits are among the hawk’s favorite food.

De plus, la Cubed doit tirer un appât! Comme vous pouvez le voir sur la photo, le Cubed traine une patte de lapin qui a été parfumée. Les lapins sont parmi les aliments préférés du rapace.

Hawks dive at speeds around 100 MPH when hunting. The X – 6 Cubed will have to be incredibly maneuverable to avoid the diving hawk. Paul must turn fast laps while ready to abruptly turn off line and change speeds; he may have to turn around and go backward. Remember the hawk is no slouch at catching rabbits which unpredictably dart here and there – the hawk can change direction too.

L'aigle plongent à des vitesses avoisinant les 100 MPH (160,93km/h) lors de son attaque. Le X - 6 Cubed devra être incroyablement vif pour éviter de faire plonger le faucon. Paul doit réaliser des tours rapides, se tenir prêt à changer brusquement de trajectoire et changer sa vitesse; il ourrat faire demi-tour et revenir en arrière. Rappelez-vous le faucon n'est pas maladroit et très abile pour attraper les lapins qui savent se rendrent imprévisible - le faucon peut changer de direction aussi.

X Factory vs. West Coast Falconry. Who will win? The Cubed or the hawk? Friday night, May 2nd, National Geographic Channel, 9 PM Eastern & Pacific.

X Factory vs West Coast Falconry. Qui va gagner? Le Cubed ou le faucon? Vendredi soir, le 2 mai, sur la chaine National Geographic, à 21 heures heure.

Je rajouterai (tiens faudra que je la fasse à Chazz celle là!) que vu que le support d'aileron va casser à l'impact, le piaf va pas pouvoir soulever l'auto ;-)

Autre solution, la buse de harris va croquer la KO de Paul et tranquillement aller chercher la peau de lapin ensuite

La dame a foutu ses doigts dans les yeux du driver, le rapace en a profité pour choper le x6 et a déchiqueté en deux la caisse.

Après avoir bouffé le lipo, le rapace est mort et la ligue de protection des oiseaux a fait geler les actifs de la société xfactory.

J'ai tout bon?

X FACTORY WINS SHOWDOWN OF THE UNBEATABLES

4543-img_9547.jpg

Paul Sinclair, driving the X – 6 Cubed, won the contest with a Harris hawk on the new TV show Showdown Of The Unbeatables. First airing of this episode (#5) of the show was Friday night, May 2nd. National Geographic Channel unexpectedly changed the show’s air time from 9 PM to 10 PM Eastern and Central, but the episode will be re-broadcast several times. Check your local listings. The episode that includes X Factory and R/C cars is titled, “Drill vs. Super Metal.” Each episode of Showdown is divided into three parts, and X Factory X – 6 Cubed vs. Harris hawk is the last part of this episode.

Sinclair and the X – 6 Cubed are shown doing a number of stunts during the X Factory set-up portion of the show. The car is shown on a regular outdoor R/C race track in some great close-up video, but then is shown going through orange cones which were set up on the track putting additional corners in the existing corners, making things much more difficult.

Then the Cubed is shown in a monster jump, landing on top of a U-Haul moving van! Paul’s Cubed beats a dirt bike in a drag race, then goes to an indoor skateboard park with some great footage in the bowl with a boarder.

Last, Paul jumps the Cubed length-wise over a huge full-size crew cab pick-up truck. The kicker is that Chazz was standing in front of the truck. William Tell had to shoot the apple off the head of his son. Would Paul’s Cubed miss his dad?

Then came the showdown with the hawk. The TV crew had built an off-road race track. The hawk had been trained to attack a rabbit’s fur bait about two inches in diameter and six inches long. Paul had to drag the bait on a short string behind the car, and it had quite an effect on handling. Could Paul complete three full laps before the hawk grabbed the bait?

YES!!!!! The agile, nimble, speedy X – 6 Cubed outran and dodged every attempt the hawk made to capture the bait, completing three laps unscathed.

X Factory plans to put the R/C portion of the episode up on their web site as soon as possible. There should also be video of Paul & Chazz watching the live airing of the show along with some friends at a party. Finally, lots of out-take video and photos will be posted, so stay tuned. There were two stunts which were edited entirely out of the show, and we will put up vids from these along with the out-takes. The TV quality of these vids & pix is unexcelled, and you will see the R/C car in all sorts of unusual and exciting situations.

So stay tuned for more from Showdown Of The Unbeatables!!!
